Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
For a "healthy" cookie these were great! The batter seemed a bit stiff & the cookies didn't quite flatten out on their own (I spoon-flattened the first batch halfway through cooking & pressed the 2nd batch down with my hands before baking), but other than that I was delighted. Got mixed reviews in my household; my mom & I loved them (we are health/wheat freaks) but my sister & dad simply tolerated them. I halved the recipe & used 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp warm water in place of the egg. Also, I used evaporated cane juice instead of white sugar, and the granules are a little bigger than white sugar. I think this might be why the batter was a bit dry; the larger granules perhaps absorb more liquid? I have this problem quite often when making cookies, maybe next time I'll increase the liquids. All in all a great starter recipe!

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
my very first attempt at ANY kind of homemade french fry, and they came out perfect. I used sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and a dash of each: garlic powder, dehydrated onion, parsley flakes. Cut them into thin 2 1/2" fries & they crisped up perfectly. Awesome just with ketchup.. a new favorite food for sure!!!!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
came out excellent; i sent them out as thanksgiving goodies to my friends who live out of state and they loved them! they kept well for the 2 or so days they were in transit.. i think the oatmeal is what helps them stay so soft. I used all the modifications listed in the first review posted here [the very top one].. also, make sure you make them pretty big.. the smaller ones I made came out too hard, but the bigger were so soft and chewy.

Ginger Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
My boyfriend LOVES when I make this, and it was a big hit at my work's holiday party. A few modifications I made: for the topping, I use 1/2 c oatmeal AND 1/2 c chopped walnuts & pecans.. it makes it extra crunchy & extra nutty. Also, I use 3 c fresh pears & 3 c fresh apples. Where the recipe calls for boiling the pear syrup, I make my own syrup with 1 c water, 1/2 cup sugar, & 1/4 brown sugar. I use nutmeg in place of cloves, and added in about 1 tbsp cinnamon. Served HOT with vanilla ice cream.. absolutely delicious :)
